I was over the moon when The Luckyrice Festival gave us VIP tickets to their Los Angeles event! Emily Tangerine, George Wang and Nate Fierro joined me in the madness. We got to the event right at 7PM and there was already a line forming. Luckily we were amongst the first to get in. Once it started it was all madness! There were SO many food booths and so many tastes and flavors to take in. It was really hard to take photos because it was all so fast-paced but I managed to get a few good ones in. THE FOOD WAS AMAZING. To be honest, I got full halfway through the booths, many of the portion sizes were incredibly generous. I forced myself to eat my way through it all though!
For drinkers, there was so much cool alcohol available. There were bars everywhere with sponsored alcohol and different mixed drinks at every station. One bar had cool tonics that you could mix in. Another had thai iced tea boba spiked with gin.
Thank you so much to Danielle Chang for creating this amazing event and allowing us to attend!
The Director asked me yesterday what I would be blogging about and I chirped back “My life of course”. In a little tiff we had later on that night he exclaimed “what could you possibly write about in your life that is so interesting?!” He had a point, these days I just go to work, hang out with my cats and The Director and eat. I’m totally into the simple life, the simplicity rules!
But today…. I had an epiphany. My girlfriend called to fill me in on a little big of gossip and I realized that the new no-gossip diet that I had put myself on already had positive effect after one week! So damnnit Mr. Director, I do have some interesting things to share from my life. Here goes….
I’m going to confess. I have a Huge.Gossiping.Addiction. and its bad. I didnt even realize it was such a big thing, I really just thought it was something all girls did after all I was born and raised on gossip. Growing up I heard so much gossip, the seemingly innocuous kind, for example: “Did you hear that your cousin Alice got a 1500 on her SAT and got accepted to Harvard? Did you know the my friends son Paul just graduated law school and is already earning a six figure income? None of this was “evil” gossip persay, but gossip it was. I’m sure that many Asians can related to this! Early on I became conditioned to pay lots of attention to what other people were doing and than size myself up against their accomplishments.
I just tried out the 30 Days of Candy box (which was gifted to me) because I have a huge sweet tooth and as you know I love those damn subscription boxes. Its like getting presents in the mail! Also Halloween was my favorite holiday as a kid because of the trick or treating. I love trying different tastes from all around the world. I’m kind of a weird one. For example, when traveling, most people love to see all the sights, the landmarks, famous monuments. I’m not really into sightseeing at all, for me, I can soak in all the culture of a new place through it’s food and its local eateries. But I digress, I had a really fun time trying out all the sweets!
It’s finally here! Check out Nylon Pink‘s brand new cover video of Taylor Swift’s Style!!! The girls chose to cover a Taylor Swift song in honor of Kiki Wongo’s epic stage performance on drums for Taylor Swift’s 2014 MTV Video Music Awards Performance. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TIdaZ7FMQPs
Its funny, people always ask how a group of girls would get along for so long, expecting them to go at it with each other likes cats and dogs. For the many years that Nylon Pink has been together, 95% percent of the drama has always been caused by the hangers-on whether they be money stealing managers, untrustworthy agents, shady friends and over possessive girlfriends and boyfriends. Damn leeches! So many of them all around.
Of course the girls fight here and there and get annoyed with each other (we had to tour around for two months together in a van for godssakes) but in general the girl fighting has been extremely minimal. I consider some (definitely not all) of the girls sisters for life that I would do anything for. You go girls!
I came across the Hot Girls Wanted documentary one night recently on Netflix. Having exhausted Orange in the New Black season three and everything else on Netflix I was desperate for something to watch. At the time I wasn’t aware that the documentary was shot by the beautiful Rashida Jones of The Office fame. The rise in the interest of young girls wanting to pursue a “career” in amateur porn seems to arise from the fascination with the instant sex-tape to celebrity status achieved by such “celebrities” such as Paris Hilton and Kim Kardashian
I was so excited to get invited to the Attack on Titan world premiere with Nylon Pink! Unfortunately the rest of the Nylon Pink girls were hard at work rehearsing for Mechacon this upcoming event in New Orleans and were so sad that t hey were unable to attend.
I didn’t really know what to expect with the movie, I’m not the hugest live action movie fan. I just thought it would be a cutesy little anime action movie, but it was creepy as hell! The live action Titans are so nightmarish and the movie is very bloody and dark. I was totally into it! It was bad-ass, in the vein of Battle Royale and it holds no punches. I definitely recommend watching it and I plan on watching it again! The CGI and special effects are very well done – I don’t want to give anything away but theres a baby scene in the movie that made the little hairs on my arms stand on end
The actors were all engaging, from the tough good looking, almost silent rogue Eren played by Satomi Ishihara and the model-beautiful kick ass chick Mikasa played by Kiko Mizuhara. Hans offers the very necessary comic relief with her over the top seriousness as well as the always hungry Sasha (girl I can relate!) I can’t wait to see part 2!
The beautiful Emily Tangerine joined me on the red carpet!
I think it was genius for CL to pursue a solo career in the US without her 2NE1 girls. Although I am a big fan of the entire group, CL is by far the standout star with her brazen rockstar charisma on and off stage. The other girls would just hold her back. So many Asian superstars have tried to break through to the US with zero success. When I was growing up, the Mariah Carey of Asia, Coco Lee tried her big US breakthrough career. She made some super poor choices with who she collaborated and she was lacking in the fashion sense of the US and she barely made any noise overall. The Wonder Girls tried recently but is anyone really interested in the 20 girl group thing in the US? For the moment girl groups havent been on top since The Pussycat Dolls while the solo female rapper thing is fresh and new.
Some reasons CL might come out on top?
Her style is even stronger than most American pop stars and being the muse of Jeremy Scott certainly doesn’t hurt!
Gwen Stefani’s Tea Party – BeautyCon x Harajuku Lovers
I died last night and went to heaven. I was so lucky to get to attend Gwen Stefani’s exclusive pre-Beautycon bash as a part of the talent guestlist for Meitu. Make sure to check out and download the MixVid app – its blowing up and many huge announcements soon. The event was everything I could have imagined it to be. All the Youtube influencers were in attendance and the Wilshire Ebell Theatre was decked out in super pop color and there were tasty confections to be had around every corner.
